As we near the end of the first half of the season, our boys have hit a bit of a slump. Good thing they got off to such a great start. As of this writing, the Dodgers are tied for No. 1 with the dreaded Giants. But Mr. Kemp (N.L. Home Run Derby captain, to you) will return to the lineup after the All-Star break, and hopefully the new management will spring for another starter and a bat to fill the void left by the wild swings of Loney and Uribe. It’s not panic time, just time to realize that magic and wishing hard only take you so far. Meanwhile, in the Ravine, we face the Mets for four games. Hopefully, yesterday, they used up all their run allotment for the week when they walloped the Orioles, 17-1.
